Ark Skincare are proud to be an award winning, British skincare brand, using bioactive natural ingredients, containing highly effective antioxidants, lipids and vitamins. They ensure their formulations are FREE FROM Parabens, SLS, mineral oil, S.D. Alcohol, Formaldehyde, and Artificial Colours & Fragrances. Avoiding these irritants is the fist step in achieving optimum skin health.
The ARK Skincare range consists of three key age specific product lines, Protect for teens & 20s, Defend for 30s & 40s, & Defy for those over 50. Each range is supported by skinperfectors, a collection of highly effective targeted treatment products to treat any specific skin concerns you may have; and skinessential, a family of every day products for all ages and lifestyles. The combination of selected products from each group provides you with a bespoke skincare programme unique to you.
Is Ark Skincare right for me? Yes, if you are looking for an effective, affordable, award-winning, cruelty free skincare range that uses natural ingredients and is suitable for even the most sensitive skins. ARK treats skin primarily by age, but also by skin concern. Their age specific products ensure you address the needs of your skin according to the age you are. Young skin needs protecting but not over stimulating. More mature skins need higher levels of nourishment, and help to keep skin supple and firm. With their treatment products they tackle everything from breakouts and redness, to pigmentation and dullness. Their strict cruelty free policy means they never test on animals. The whole facial skincare line is suitable for Vegans.
Where to start? First start by choosing your age specific range and select your Cleanser and Moisturiser for your age. These contain the optimum levels of vitamins, minerals, lipids and antioxidants to give you beautiful, healthy skin. Second, choose the best treatments from the Skin Perfector range which will address any skin concerns you may have. Third, add in products from the ARK skin essentials range to complement your lifestyle. Finally, to ensure a balance of body and mind, explore the Body Beautiful and Spa Aromatic ranges.

I am thrilled to welcome ARK Skincare and CEO, Tamsin Styles. This quiet and tranquil boutique located in the heart of Haslemere is the first of ARK’s boutiques to open as well as the HQ to the whole award winning operation.
Creating a skincare regime can be overwhelming..
Especially, if you are not the type of person who has been dedicated to a strict routine since your teens. I was definitely not that person but it wasn’t for the lack of trying. My continuous struggle to incorporate a complex multi-step routine into my busy life went on for well over a decade. Until recently, I was the ever so envious mum at the school gate. Jealous and bewildered at how these heroic women found the time to be exceptional mums, accomplished career women as well as fitting in an extensive skincare procedure. And on a twice daily basis!
Not only had I struggled to allot a portion of my day to a routine, I was totally baffled by the world of skincare and the number of products and formulas that are now available to us. My mum taught me that there were 3 skin types: oily, dry and combination. Now back in what may as well be the dark ages (5 years ago), I was said to have combination skin. Both oily and dry! However, was my skin type still the same? It sure as sunshine didn’t still look the same. Otherwise let’s face it I wouldn’t be in this predicament in the first place. Let me tell you there are now at least 6 skin types and counting. For some you need to know your sebum/sweat production levels and for other I’m convinced you need a science degree or a week on google to understand the different acids and solutions.
Then i found ARK Skincare
I’d almost given up before i came across this special place. Who would have thought it, after all these years what i’d been searching for was simply sitting on the high street in Haslemere. Had I not walked into my local beauty boutique a few weeks ago i’d still be struggling now. ARK make it easy, they don’t pigeon hole people into skin types and they don’t believe we are the same skin type for our entire life. They have 3 distinct age intelligent categories: ageprotect for teens and twenties, agedefend for our 30’s and 40’s and agedefy for the over 50’s. In addition to their age-related products they have skin perfectors, highly effective treatment products to address any concerns and they have ‘every day essentials,’ picked according to lifestyle.
Being in my mid-thirties my skin was starting to show signs of ageing as fine lines and wrinkles began to appear. ARK suggest that this is the time that we start to encounter internal and external stresses and the best time to begin to defend the integrity of your skin with vital nutrients and greater antioxidant protection.
I must also slip in that ARK are 100% against animal testing and are passionate about reducing animal cruelty. With Tamsin herself suffering with very sensitive skin she stands in as the company’s chief guinea pig when any new product is being developed.
I brought this for my daughter who is suffering from regular breakouts and redness. She reports that it is “flipping fabulous” and the best absorbed and tolerated moisturiser she’s ever used. I can see she’ll be trying the whole range soon...Nicola K
Amazing product, re-ordered numerous times for my girlfriend and she absolutely loves it. By far the best on the market! Customer service an absolute pleasure to deal with too! 100% recommend!Daniel S
This moisturiser has become part of my everyday routine, after washing my face in the morning (with the cleanser) and cold water I put half a pump on my face. Unlike most moisturisers it’s not oily, so it works nicely under foundation. Absolutely none of it goes to waste either because its vacuum packed. Highly recommend, it’s honestly done wonders to my skin!Melissa M

"It’s a brilliant idea for the local community and a great way to support local independent businesses. We love The Mustcard."Van Glue Beauty, Midhurst
"A fantastic opportunity for local businesses and customers alike! I use The Mustcard for both of my Fernhurst based businesses and we have a lot of very happy customers!"Banyan, Fernhurst
"Such a fantastic scheme. As a business we have an offer on with the Mustcard which has given us a platform to reach more local customers. But more than that I have been personally using my card to shop locally in Haslemere and Midhurst. Some of the discounts are brilliant. The best part for me is the fabulous write ups on local shops and pubs that I otherwise would not have known about! We have visited so many new places because of the Mustcard, it has opened up our local area. I love scrolling through the business listings and exploring all the new places! Supporting the local independents, what could be better than that! Thank you Mustcard."May and Grace Bridal, Haslemere
"I don't know how i lived before this card came about! The Value for money is unmatched! After 1-2 uses, you have made your money back and then you have the rest of the year to save? Um, yes please! It's not just the value for money. It's the inspiration. I find myself quite frequently going onto the website to find places for me an my girlfriend to visit! so yeah, its a no-brainer. Do yourself a favour and treat yourself to a Mustcard. The bigger this gets, the more we all benefit."Luke Cullis
"What an incredible opportunity for local people and businesses alike! We love the sense of community it bring to everyone."The Kings Arms, Fernhurst
“I’m looking forward to being able to try new places that offer a discount. A little change from the usual chains.”Narinder Kaur
"It's a no brainer! Tailor it to suit your business and it doesn't cost you a bean. We've already had business from it as a result."Woodie and Morris, Haslemere
In today’s fast changing world the things we value are shifting equally as fast. The move away from chain style shops and departments stores to online ordering for example. Within this the Independent shops have become the marker, not only for defining our towns, by giving them identity and individuality, but by increasing the sense of community. Supporting Independent small and family businesses keeps our towns alive. The Mustcard is a superb, affordable way for us to say ‘YES, we are in. YES we value and support our town’s individuality, it’s personality and it’s people’. The additional twist is that, in so doing, these amazing shops and their owners reward Mustcard Members with special discounts!! It’s a true win win!My Midhurst Life
